Department For Education
Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, a number of BSOs have been closed by their local government as a mandatory measure. Many of these schools would have been due an inspection within the coming months to ensure that they continued to meet the relevant standards a stipulation for BSO accreditation.
In circumstances where DfE have been made aware that the school have had their inspection postponed due to Covid-19, we will ensure that their BSO accreditation is extended until the inspection has been rescheduled and carried out.
Therefore we would advise all BSOs whose inspections have been impacted, and would like to apply for an extension to their accreditation to contact the Department at BritishSchools.OVERSEAS@education.gov.uk.
When contacting DfE, please specify the reason for the rescheduling of the inspection, confirm the date the original inspection was due to be carried out, and (if available) any information regarding the postponed inspection. DfE will review all applications on an individual basis.
